the brand's founder and creative mind - Anna Molinari. The best of Italian design comes together in this purse - lines, materials, decoration details - wonderful concept and exquisite execution.

The main difference for the this satchel is that it is very versatile and can be used for large number of formal and informal events.

The leather is of best quality, it is also very beautiful and durable as well, so you don't have to worry about scratches.
The original price was about 1500 USD, but it might have changed as the handbag is not available online.
The B bag was introduced in 2009 and though the purse was more summer handbag, the public generally loved the design and handstiched cascading leather details. The Blumarine just gets it when it comes to handbags. They know that women look for new styles and shapes, but at the same time they are not ready to sacrifice the functionality. So all of the handbags made by this brand are carefully crafted bearing these cornerstones of any successful bag - design and practical utilization. That is why there is a market and demand for their purses, from celebrities (Heidi Klum has been spotted with one of the Blumarine bags) to ordinary women who value comfort and elegance in designs.
Cocca satchel is the purse with most leather details, straps, knots and decoration. Its shape is not the classic clean lined Italian design characteristic to previous successful purses, but it mostly resembles the pouches women used to carry some centuries ago. Some models are ornamented with crystals and there are various shades (the pale one looks like a shar pei puppy). However the brand pulled it off again and Cocca was the chosen purse for many celebrities and the crowd followed as usual. What is also characteristic about this particular Italian brand is that this tote is very spacious and comfy, though it does not look that from the outside.
